You have to take a PCR test abroad no earlier than 72 hours before arrival in Estonia.

A transcript of test results must be in the Latin or Slavic alphabet in Estonian, Russian or English and it must state the location and time of the test, who took the test and their details, as well as the method (PCR) and result of the test.

Second covid test for hospital is organized by Bariatric Services.

How do we ensure the safety of our patients?

On the way here, we recommend that you always use a mask and disinfect your hands.

Each patient will get a personal taxi at the port or airport, we use taxis where the driver and customer are separated by a partition.

All patients are tested for Covid-19 the day before the operation, until the answer is received on the morning of the operation, the patients are conveniently located in the Viimsi Spa Hotel, which is right next to the hospital and the distance between the hospital and the hotel can be сovered on foot, the hotel is included in the price.

Only persons who have also been tested for Covid-19 are allowed to stay in hospital and visit the patients.

After surgery, we send patients to the port or airport by private taxi, which has partition.

The most of our hospital staff are vaccinated. No Covid patients or staff have been identified at our hospital so far.

We take the situation very seriously – no staff member is allowed to come to work if there are any symptoms of illness or known contact with a Covid positive.

What happens if you should get a positive diagnosis of Covid-19 in Estonia?

In this case, you will inevitably have to remain in quarantine for 14 days, you may also have to do a re-test in the meantime and if it is negative you can end the quarantine earlier.

If severe symptoms occur, the person is hospitalized in a special hospital.

To be insured against such a scenario and the costs involved, we always recommend that you make travel insurance that covers the covid-19 risk, which covers the possible costs of accommodation, hospital and new airfare.

Do not come for surgery if you have symptoms of upper respiratory diseases or suspect that you may have come into contact with a covid-positive person to avoid a situation where you develop Covid-19 when you arrive in Estonia.
